My friends over at Gorida posted an amazing mountaineering video last week that is amongst the best that I have seen in a really long time. It tells the story of four French guides who traveled to Pakistan to put up a new route on the Trango Pulpit, part of the Trango Towers, which offers some of the most imposing and impressive big walls anywhere in the world.
The video is quite long, but well worth the watch. It shows the team en route to the mountain itself, giving an indication of just how remote the region is, and then proceeds to show them climbing the face, and eventually reaching the 6050m (19,849 foot) summit. In between, you see some footage that will make your mouth drop.
So, sit back, and enjoy, because mountaineering videos don’t get much better than this one.
